To Read, A List

For the first time in many years, I have the opportunity to read. A lot. I read articles, books, blogs, forums and other text that  other people thought about and then put into the world. It seems like I’m always either reading or writing something these days. But if you are any kind of literary… Read more »

I did not know what to blog about today and so decided to ride the subway one stop from Brooklyn to East Village. You know, in the hopes that something interesting would happen there.

I’m in a grumpier mood than usual this evening and so want to rant about something that I often see happen on the subway. Crowded train. Lots of people. One pole between several rows.

Next Best Thing for Valentine’s: Fashion Week

  When your loved one is far away, the next best way to spend Valentine’s Day is by going to shows at New York Fashion Week. No, I’m not joking.

The Open Road (From A Cell Phone)

  While trying to create some sense of order in my very large photo library, I came across a few videos that I shot on my phone during my visit to Vancouver last week. The place?
